and the interview from the-- that audio was on their website. and president obama did a half an hour chat with them, but at the end of it he said, boot way that's off the record. they said, come on, mr. president, we'd like to hear what you have to say. that kind of back fired and did later release it. the big story is conventional wisdom to endorse the president, but they've instead endorsed mitt romney. >> clayton: not since 1972, 40 years, unbelievable. here is what they had to say about the decision to pick mitt romney. our discussion repeatedly circled back to the single most important challenge, getting the economy out of the doldrums and more americans and meaningful jobs with promising futures and the federal government on track to balance the budget in a bipartisan manner which the country demand. which candidate could force the compromises in congress to achieve the goals. when the question is framed in those terms, mitt romney emerges as the stronger candidate and the sentence stuck out for me, the president's best efforts to resuscitate the stumbling economy have fallen short and nothin
company. next up is zanesville, ohio. we will take you there live. a look at the ground games of the obama and romney campaigns. >> she's a national political reporter and is here to talk to us about the ground game in campaign 2012. welcome to the program. >> what exactly is a ground game? >> mrs. the political component known as field organization, so all of the things that the campaigns do to connect with voters, individually, on the ground, through field offices, through phone calls, and knocking on doors, and trying to drive people out to the polls, so beyond, you know, what the candidates do, when they're giving speeches on the stump, and beyond the ads that you see on tv and beyond the crafting of the message that the speechwriters and the ad writers do, this is the part of the campaign that comes down to connecting with voters, and making sure they vote. >> how important is the ground game this year compared with previous elections? >> i think it tends to be a pretty consistent part of any political campaign. it's something that democrats tend to emphasize a little bit more than re
for chief executive. and for all his short comings mr. obama has dragged america's economy back from the brink of disaster and has made a decent first of foreign policy. so this newspaper would stick with the devil it knows and re-elect him."
of ohio and michigan would look like today if mr. obama had not presided over the rescue of injury -- general motors. they depend on 850,000 jobs. they created the assembly and parts jobs in ohio. without it, chrysler and begin would have gone out of business and domestic industry supply chain would have collapsed taking ford with them. instead, u.s. auto makers are achieving huge gains in the fuel efficiency of their cars and trucks. who said that? >> mitt romney. >> stephanie: no. they go on to say the bailouts began under president george bush. mitt romney continued to oppose them. they're paying attention in ohio. they also say in the depths of the great recession no such investment was forthcoming. a high-powered businessman and the son of a detroit auto ceo who plays up his michigan roots might be expected to acknowledge that but no. [ applause ] alfranken will have to write an entire book about the romney campaign, the lies and liars to tell about this epic campaign. by the way here is a little shout out
mileage out of it, mr. obama. >> cenk: michael that's a really interesting point. how much does politics play into the reactions of an administration during a disaster like this? >> here's what i explain to everybody. think about this. every disaster always involves the following... at least two u.s. senators, at least one congressman and at least the president of the united states. so for people to believe that politics doesn't play a role or at least politics isn't on the minds of politicians is just being naive. >> cenk: so if that's the case, why did the bush administration screw it up so badly. do you also acknowledge -- you were the former fema director at the time, d' acknowledge there were mistakes made and if so, you know, why get something so monumentally important politically let alone policywise wrong in that case? >> well, because i think there were political miscalculations during katrina and there were actual -- how would i describe it? there were actual leadership problems during katrina. reme
disagree with obama care. this is something that governor perdue and mr. dalton supported from the beginning. they recommended no changes in the legislation. they did not challenge legally the legislation. the impact this will have a north carolina is going to be dramatic. i am very concerned right now that we will have many businesses here in rocky mount that could literally -- we're not offering insurance anymore and we will pay the penalty of obama care and let the federal government taken over and literally not offer insurance to its employees anymore. the impact of this on our medicaid system which is already financially struggling, in three years, could be staggering to the state of north carolina. i do disagree with that. i think the states should come up with their own plan as opposed to the federal government having one plan for all 50 states. >> i do think the affordable care act needs some amendments to help small business but the reason i support it is because i think it will be good for the health of our citizens and the health of our economy. the first three years
